    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Rockstar Games full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exciting office, friendly colleagues, good general environment. Lots of perks including a fully stocked kitchen, gym membership reimbursement and soccer on Wednesdays.

    Cons

    Very long hours, bad work/life balance. Sometimes you didn't know if you'd have the weekend off until 6 pm on Friday. Crunch time is incredibly stressful.

    Programmer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Rockstar Games (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I applied online through a job seeking portal. The next day I was contacted and ask to complete a technical design test in 24 hours. The technical part of the test was exceedingly easy for anyone with even a basic knowledge of game programming, while the design part was a lot more subjective. A few days after I completed the test and sent it back, with a request for feedback on the test regardless of whether I passed, I was contacted again and told that they thought I "would not make a good fit". I e-mailed them back and thanked them and again asked for feedback, but never got a response.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question on the test was to write a simple Finite State Machine for a door control AI.   1 Answer
